Abu Dhabi’s famous corniche is to undergo a major revamp which will see the introduction of a number of new food and beverage outlets.
The new plaza, W10, is set to be built in the West 10 block between two of the city’s major thoroughfares – Al Khaleej Al Arabi and Sultan bin Zayed.
It will be built over several levels and include underground parking for 700 cars and above-ground space containing the F&B units, as well as a number of exclusive retail stores. A pedestrian underpass will also be added to provide direct access to the beach.
The Municipality said the development will play an important part in the continued improvement of the city’s corniche area, with the 10,000 sqm site being built around a streetscape to take advantage of the existing green space.
Abu Dhabi Municipality has launched a tender for firms to build and operate the new plaza.
